    I'm always amazed at the way Jeff is able to tweak so many posters. I've seen it over the years at SSB, Fezzik's Place, LVA, RTP and EOG.

    So let's keep Jeff's challenge going, I'm taking TB -113. Three reasons: Caddy Pete pick, line move on TB, and TB has a 1 game win streak ... LOL

    Well, Jeff is off to a 2-0 start. Congrats!

    We need someone to step up today and offer a pick. Jeff takes the other side so make sure you don't take a ML dog.

    I will gladly pay to have Jeff's denim shirt embroidered with his name on it. Even better I'd pay to have the buttons sewn back on also. Can anyone else step up to get him a haircut and shave?

    Thanks for participating! First pick for Sunday, July 1 (same rules as EOG Grand Challenge).

    LAD wins 8-3 so Jeff suffers his first loss of the Challenge. Record 2-1.

    This sucks. It would be a made for tv event if Jeff was picking. Which is a credit to his polorizing posting persona.

    Philly pushes across 3 runs in the top of the ninth to send the total over, 9-2, so Jeff wins another in the Challenge, W/L record 4-2.

    Note: This total got bet up quite a bit, from around 8 UN -105 early to 8 UN +109 when bookbraker posted. This means Jeff actually got the advantage of laying more than -110 on the other side. However since the 8 UN even line was only stale by about an hour, I'll let it stand. This is done in the spirit of JJ usually not caring about a few cents, even if its in his favor ... lol

    I will open an opportunity for a pick for tomorrow in the morning.

    Yep, Giants -118 @ Pinny gives JJ the Nats +111. Tim P. will be at the game, rooting for TheRef.

    The Nats make an epic comeback from being down 5-1 to win 6-5, so Jeff wins another in the Challenge, W/L record 5-2.

    Now open for a pick for Friday, July 6.

    Looking at BM, says NY Mets -1 1/2 +150.
    It takes 2 years to learn to talk, but a lifetime to learn to shut up.
